FAIRFIELD — The 286-unit Green Valley Apartments near Solano Community College won unanimous approval Wednesday by city planning commissioners who also OK’d the proposed 210-unit Rockville Terrace assisted living facility on Mangels Boulevard near NorthBay Healthcare’s Green Valley campus.
Planning Commissioner Camille Jones called both projects “just fantastic.”
The gated apartments on 13 acres at 3900 Business Center Drive will rent for between $1,400 and $2,000 a month, said Tom Allen, vice president with Stockton-based A.G. Spanos Companies.
A clubhouse, pool and spa are part of the project.
He told commissioners that A.G. Spanos is looking forward to developing another apartment in Fairfield.
“It’s been a few years,” Allen said. “We’ve always had good luck here.”
Commission Chairman Scott Tonnesen said, “Your positive energy is encouraging.”
Rockville Terrace by Vacaville-based Blue Mountain Inc. will include libraries, a salon, spa, theater and gym.
“It’s absolutely going to be gorgeous,” owner Jason Reyes said.
The city of Fairfield owns the property between Suisun Valley and Green Valley roads in the Green Valley Corporate Park.
Independent living at the five-acre site will start at $1,900 a month, with assisted living costing $2,900 to $3,900 a month and memory care ranging between $4,400 to $4,500, Reyes said.
Blue Mountain opened Cornerstone Assisted Living in Vacaville in January and the site is 75 percent occupied, he said.
“There is an astronomical demand” for senior care, Reyes said.
“We have a very good reputation in Solano County,” he said. “We have a lot of word of mouth.”
Commissioner Randy Blankenchip said, “I’m not a senior, but I’m ready to move in.”
